MARBLES TILES AND SLABS

Marble is the hardest of the calcium carbonate family of stones and has the greatest variety of available colours, from black to white, red to blue and, of course a wide range of greens and other colours too.

Marble is an exquisite mineral that differs from most other stones since it is extremely porous. For example, it allows dirt and stains to set in and be retained far more easily than denser stones. For this main reason, marble cannot withstand rather harsh cleaning mediums, especially with using heavy detergents and acids.

It is wise to remember that marble has a slightly unstable chemical mixture and is quite delicate. Calcium carbonate, the main ingredient of marble, immediately and dramatically reacts with any kind of acid, which results in pitting and scarring.
